Tsujita-san’s Ichimi Togarashi is fiery blend of Takanotsume and Santaka chili peppers. They are stone ground and carefully blended to balance flavor and heat. This has such a wonderful aroma of chili peppers and an intense heat. Use this spice to add some zing to any meat dish, noodles, miso soup or whatever you want to spice up.
Keep in freezer when not using to preserve freshness.
